Mitch Mustain may avoid charges
Just last month we posted a story about former Springdale High School Quarterback Mitch Mustain being arrested in Los Angeles.
At the time, it appeared he would would face felony charges for allegedly selling Adderall — a controlled substance — online to an undercover officer. A few weeks after that, we posted another story stating it appeared Mustain would deal with a misdemeanor charge for allegedly passing off something else that is not a controlled substance as Aderall. That story, too, detailed how Mustain’s name has popped up in an NFL draft story or two. Indeed, the quarterback’s outlook had brightened considerably.
Well, folks, things are looking better for Mustain still — the Los Angeles Times reports that he could avoid charges altogether if he completes a drug-education program, perform 100 hours of community service and not be involved in another instance with police over the course of one year.
That may be the end of this particular story.
Mustain, as any Arkansan should recall, led Springdale to a Class 5A football championship in 2005, was heavily recruited by colleges and became an Arkansas Razorback. In 2006, Mustain left the University of Arkansas and headed to USC where he pulled freight as a backup quarterback all the way through graduation.
